It’s nearly tassel time again.

Atlanta Public Schools announced the 2019 commencement dates for 15 high schools.

This May, most of the graduation ceremonies will move to the McCamish Pavilion at Georgia Tech because scheduling conflicts prevented APS and other school districts from renting the Georgia World Congress Center.
